We are blessed with an immune system that
protects us from all sorts of infections and diseases. We
maintain reasonably good health despite exposure to
disease-causing agents because we have an in-built immune system
and we maintain it with good eating and clean living habits.
Just as we develop immunity in the body we need to develop
immunity of the spirit to protect the purity of our heart, mind
and soul and stay free of negativity.
Some of us are aware that we are exposed
and susceptible to millions of negative vibrations from the
external world, and to negativity in us. We need to transform
ourselves from within to overcome negative karmas and
influences. Negativities are an insult to the soul. They block
the very light of the soul. Mind is a gift from God and we
should not allow it to get polluted. In order to increase
spiritual immunity, letís learn to overcome jealousy, doubt
and unnecessary desires.
Another most common tendency is that we
keep remembering and reliving the past, both achievements and
traumas. We blame others for our misfortunes and take credit for
our successes. But often we are responsible for our misfortunes,
and we come to fear the future. Stop thinking of past
achievements and failures and learn to live in the present. Then
only we can come back to the original state of purity and build
immunity of spirit.
When the ignorant irk us, we need to be
patient and not get upset or retort. At the same time, we must
acknowledge and accept the knowledge in others without being
contemptuous or arrogant. Thus, when we calmly hear without
reacting, we become immune to peopleís criticisms and praise
that are meant to cloud our perspective. Then their negativity
will not rub on us and we will be able to shore up good karma.
The young are impressionable and eager to
learn. They are able to absorb divine vibrations easily, though
they tend to be hot-headed and impatient. This could be why
swearing comes so easily to them with a short temper and the
desire to see instant results. This spoils the purity of their
mind and heart. When purity and innocence is lost, grace stops
flowing and you begin to accumulate bad karma! The older
generation needs to come out of their comfort zone and the youth
must come out of their impatient and adamant zone. We must be
willing to identify and firmly resolve to drop off all our
negative traits one by one right from young age itself so that
the process of cultivating immunity begins.
Although the physical body is always
impure, the mind should be kept clean. This will help us refine
our intuitive powers so that we are able to decide what to do,
when to do and how to do. Only when we are willing to learn do
we begin to recognise, receive, retain and contain the Divinity
Spiritual immunity protects us like a fortress from negative
people, negative vibrations and karmic blocks from our past and
present lives. It draws the best things to us. It fortifies and
reinforces us with emotional and mental stability and builds up
self-confidence. It makes us feel secure and in control. Due to
spiritual immunity our innate powers are awakened and activated.
We not only realise but also actualise that we are born as a
light to illuminate and to keep good health.
